People who make them here charge 5 or under for their creations.  Sometimes more if it is a larger piece.  DD got a cool purple and leopard barrette at a holiday bazaar for 3 dollars and the girls used duck tape for it.

 Really? I've never heard of that. Can I see pictures? I'm sorry, but I don't think I'd buy something like that and have no clue how much you could get for it.

My dd had a club at school to learn how to make stuff with duct tape. She loved it. 

Keep the price low $3 or so. You need to make your money back for the tape you bought so don't low ball the stuff to much.

 You also should look into what others are charging, how much time you put into it, etc.. often times ppl do not understand that you cannot sell as cheap as Walmart, because Walmart buys in bulk and can afford to sell cheaply (just using walmart as an example) there is a craft group on cm, you should ask questions there as well they are really good.. Good Luck to you.. There is a market for any product.. Make your passion a business.. :)

The kids around here make nice wallets and bags. I paid $30 at a silent auction for a fundraiser for a smallish bag. It's not something you can make money on i don't think. The tape is expensive and people aren't going to pay a ton as many things don't hold up. The bag handle wore out in a few months.
